  • I am puzzled as to why I should pay such a high price for CDs new when I can wait and buy them in the sales (the results of producing more copies of less music - how many 80's compilations of the same 20 songs does the world need) or buy them second hand.

    mp3 isn't just about CD's - I have 90% of my mp3 on CD or Vynl or cassette and often on all 3. Some new, some old - many bought at very very low prices.

    I agree that mp3 just isn't the same as having a real CD - I have lost gigabytes of mp3 files stored on workstations at various jobs, I've lost 100's of MB of mp3 on my desktop at home mucking about with partitions or just freeing up space.

    You can't just pick up your mp3 collection and take it home or abroad, unless you have a laptop.

    Easy come - easy go. Perversely the clamp down on p3p has meant that the mp3 I now have are more valuable to me because of their relative scarcity and how limited my access to mp3 is - this means its worth me buying cdroms to burn them onto - rather than as before just downloading them as and when I needed them

    Then there is the curious case of music that isn't in any back catalogues and unavailable outside of mp3 like the the slovenian band Tornado Lue who split and don't have cd's available to buy anywhere - I managed to find and download one copy of one song that somebody had posted on the internet.
